As usual Children’s Friend remains a busy place. I am thrilled to share a couple of exciting recent happenings with you.
Just last week, we celebrated with 14 families as they completed their work in the Nurse Family Partnership Program and graduated from the program. These first-time mothers and their families have been working for two and a half years, following an evidence-based curriculum, to overcome barriers and build the skills needed to help ensure a more stable and successful future for their families.
Today, 8 dads begin working in our Dads Making a Difference training program. Over the next 12 weeks, through this program, these men will gain valuable educational and vocational skills to help them gain full time employment and improve the economic security of their families. They will also gain valuable insights into how to be a great Dad!
Thank you for your support of our comprehensive, innovative, and effective work with young children and their families.
